Slade, pienso que Ripicapardopo es celoso de sus grabados!   :P

Hope that came out right, unless those Argentinean girls were making a fool out of me  ;D

Yeah, he's jealous because he can't use ferric perchlorure as he has metal cyborg hands... that's why he only make perfboards.

Hey, jacobyd, glad you like it... BTW here's my last joke:

What do you find at the top of a Rick's ladder?

Some of my builds - I added aluminium faceplates to pedals I build some time ago

Hi all
I’m proudly presenting Boogieman A 1590A size Dr Boogey



I originally made this layout for the 666 competition but a couple of missing pots and a slow postal service from Germany resulted in a nearly ready build but the summer holiday came in between and made me miss the dead line. The thing has been laying around for a while now and I thought it was time to finish it at last.

Here is the internals


And a sound check

And the graphics


Still have to paint the box….... :D

I have an original dremel 70's? That I have used once.
Grandfather hand me down years ago.
I ought to use it for such a task. Now to buy some bits.

By the way dave (or anyone). Know of a bit/attachment
to scrape/file flat surfaces? For instance the uneven cast
pour holes in the bottom of an enclosure?
I use a wood forstner bit in the drill press that works but
is a bit clumsy and not the right tool for the job.


John, I have a 1-1/2" broken piece of a Bastard file that I originally used for fretwork
that can double as a casting leveler. Slow to start but does the job fairly quickly.

NG.

@solderman, amazing build! i love your 1590a's. what size drill bit do you use for the holes for the lugs on the 3pdt on the pcb?
having leftover parts is just proof that you made it better!!!!

This is a Son of Screamer made with my own vero layout. This is my favourite. so happy with how it turned out after my last build which was a disaster (dr. Boogey). Blue Pnp really is the way to go.

And Guts


The next two pedals are courtesy of Taylor's PCB's. They are really good and made the builds so much easier.

Echobase with tails permanently engaged and the humbucker mods. Although im still getting a bit of distortion but its manageable thank god.

Guts


The Tap Tremelo that was designed here. Its a really good tremelo but Im having some problems with ticking. Thinking of shielding the LED as its effecting the power supply aswell. I know this as there is an LED on my adapter and it flashes with the tempo.

And guts


No knobs yet but still couldn't awit to put the pics up.
Hope you guys like them. :)

Hi,

Hey, glad I can help! Those etchings and Hupla's came out great :icon_biggrin:

Here's my latest, it's a MXR Noise Gate made with Tonepad's PCB, using Attenuation mod. Works like a charm...
This pedal is used at the end of the pedal chain, right after the effect loop and before the amp, so I thought about calling it "The Final Cut" and the orb is the logo of the band.

Well.. in fact it was Rick who gave me the "Final Cut" idea... I felt bad not recognizing his incredible creativity. Incredible for such an old man.

Here's my latest...

Am I the only one who goes through several stages when Slade posts his pictures? First, I look at the pedal and am both impressed, and instantly jealous. Then, I go over the pedal with a fine tooth comb, hoping to find an error-- a chip in the paint, a dimple in the etch, a misspelling... anything. As usual, I never do, which leaves me discouraged and dejected. But by the time I am ready to scroll on to the next picture, though, it's all bunnies and sunshine-- I end up excited and hopeful that, with practice, I'll be able to get similar results.  :D

Slade, I had almost convinced myself that your pedals must have the most mangled, hideous wiring and boards, but then you posts gutshots with this latest one, and spoil my fantasy. Grrr! :P

Awesome stuff.

Mike
